It's Wednesday and Yarn Along day. Join Ginny at Small Things for all the latest reading and knitting projects in this unique community.
I am waiting for pictures from a few people so I can post finished items in their entirety here. In the mean time, I got serious itchy fingers and started a fun Cabled Keyhole Scarf by Anne Hanson of Knitspot fame. The yarn is Berocco "Jasper" and it is a little thicker than the pattern demands, but will likely be toasty warm when complete. I made two of these scarves at the end of 2010 and loved everything about them. There are some other daunting projects that are begging for a finish, but the mood was not right just yet.
In reading news, I am re-reading the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I am definitely taking my time to soak up the details this time around. We had a lively book group discussion on Monday during which I thankfully remembered all the key points. While it was initially a page turner for me, I am enjoying the process of really studying the family tree and learning to pronounce all those Swedish names. This book may be the one to inspire me to take up coffee drinking. Coffee is either made of consumed on just about every other page!
Till next time, stay warm and enjoy some cozy knitting and reading!
